Shopify has also been developed with Search Engine Optimisation in mind. This makes sure that your products and your site shows up as well as possible in all the search engines. In addition to Google analytics you can also view in the same system key information about your existing and potential customers such as what products they looked at, where and what time they looked at and what products they decide to purchasing. All this information gives you a powerful set of data on which you can hone your online shop to ensure that you are always getting the best possible return on investment.
Shopify is also unique in that it also has an 'app store' style approach. Some apps are free and some are on a subscription type basis and offer up all sorts of extended functionality from integrating your shop in to a Facebook page to Sage accounting software integration.
